Lila Hawk is a Los Angeles native. She grew up in a family of artists who mentored and nurtured her creativity throughout her childhood and went on to study Fine Arts at UC Santa Cruz and Visual Communications at FIDM. She carries her creativity into her professional career as an editor, drawing out story, emotion, comedy and drama in television and film.
Lila celebrates the female form, sensuality and the natural world in her oil paintings. Her uniquely stylized portraits of women explore her fascination with the contrast between how we see ourselves and how we present ourselves to the world, internal struggles, female emotion and strength, and the beauty of nature itself.
